Good software. There is a bug in importing embedded videos (only video track): a video without audio track freezes the translation process to flv on my computer. I had to kill the process chain and restart the program after adding a blank audio track. It works fine, but it can become tedious if you have to remaster several videos.

Downloaded Moyea PPT to DVD burner and tested it. I inserted a blank DVD, set and start the burning. It did burn my 3-minute teaching presentation to a nice DVD.
I would give a thumb up.

First I would like to thank GAOTD for offering so many excellent and useful programs. Some like today I do not have a use for but it is still appreciated. Unlike some members, I do not have the time to download, install, activate and really thoroughly test a piece of software before the end of the offer. This also means I do not have the time to write a meaningful review. The up/down voting allows me to at least make a contribution to the evaluation. That said I agree that too many members seem to apply a thumbs up or down based solely on whether they have any use for the program. This is an unfortunate but predictable behavior and would be difficult to control. I do believe that the proposal to make voting up/down accessible from the validation page might resolve at least some of the issues around voting. It would be unfortunate if voting was limited to only those who write a review because it would take a voice away from those of us who do at least try out the software before giving a thumbs up or thumbs down. Again thank you GAOTD and all of those individuals who have and take the time to give an honest and thorough review of this sites offerings.

This software is one of the reasons I joined GAOTD. I was using a trial version of the one posted a few weeks ago, in fact that's how I found out about GAOTD. I loved the trial and am glad to have found GAOTD by using it. I was ecstatic that it was today's give away. I've used it several times already and still think it's a great program. Shouldn't be more than $50 though, I agree with that.

This is exactly what I needed! About a month ago I was seeking a program that could convert PPT to video. I found a program that was $199 and attempted several times to purchase it but continued to have problems trying to purchase it online. It was a blessing in disguise because today GOTD offered this software and it does exactly what I needed it to! User friendly and perfect for what I wanted to do. Thanks!

Installed fine on Win XP SP3. Created and Converted a slide show of images from PowerPoint and added audio no problem and pretty quickly. I decided to test with OPen Office 3.0 and saved file to .ppt and coverted to .AVI without any problems, it even kept all transitions between slides...Real Nice!

I have used PPT2Flash and ISpring, given a while back and this is way more intuitive with more options. While I will not burn any presentations to disk (flash drives and free server space available) it is great at converting to many file types.

Great GiveAway and if you deal with presentations it is a great way to add nice effects and stream on a blog or Web page. Create slide-shows of photos, create Virtual Tours of real estate, the possibilities are endless...not just to convert for users without PowerPoint like others have mentioned.

ATTENTION EVERYONE!!!! I'm rushing to let you know there is something wrong with the rating system! When you click "yes" for a "useful Comment" it comes an increase in the negative figure. I'm sure the GAOTD Team will correct it and apologize for today's glitch. I myself gave at least 10 random ratings and the change in the values was either
1 nothing (no reaction despite my vote)
2 increase in the negative value, or
3 if already positive, a decrease in its value
Conclusion: don't believe the thumbs UP/DOWN values at the beginning! They are erroneous!

My experience was that after downloading and installing, a dialog box told me (twice) that the Activation was done but when the program opened it asked me to put in the Registration Code, which I carefully copy/pasted from the supplied readme file. As soon as I clicked on the ok button the program bombed, with the usual MS request to send/don't send info to Microsoft. I restarted the program to verify if it is registered (not free trial) but it does not say anything but Active User with my computer user name. Does this mean it is registered or not?

When I click on the Import button I get an error message that this program does not support my version of PowerPoint so please upgrade it. Did I miss the system requirements somewhere (I might have)? I have the 1997 version installed and the latest version of OpenOffice. What is the difference when the file extension is .PPT?

I guess I'll play with OpenOffice a bit and see if resaving some files with it works.

Seems like a good program overall, easy to use and well laid out. Unfortunately, I tried to make an AVI file, following the steps. The program told me I had successfully made an AVI: but the resulting AVI file does not run on any of my video programs.

Hi All,

Has anybody tried this on Vista 32 bit? I have a Dell Laptop with Vista 32 bit. After the download, I tried installing it as the Admin, it keeps failing with the following message: "Failed to connect. Please try again later". I disabled my firewall, but no luck.

I also think that the thumb up/down system has a problem with it because most people who use it haven't installed the software yet. (like 50 thumbs down already at 12:01 AM)
Maybe this site could list ratings given at other download sites by editors and users.

#36, trainerdave.

Hey! You can check whether the PowerPoint process is running or not with CTrl-alt-del. If yes, terminate it. If no, follow these steps.

First confirm if your Vista is 64 bit or 32 bit. If it's 64 bit, and a VAIO, it seems to be confirmed that the program does not work. Moyea has a strange compability problem with Sony products, such as the burner problem I mentioned in the first comment.

If it's 64 bit and another brand, I don't know since I don't have a 64 bit laptop.

If it's 32 bit, browse to your registry using regedit. Find "Moyea" and "PPT to DVD converter" under HKEY_Current_User/software.
In the key value "CONFIRMPPTRUN", right click modify. Check for hexadecimal value, then enter 0. CLose Regedit and it should be up running.

For those worried about the voting system turning off developers: I have seen some feedback that the numbers of downloaders is much higher than the number of voters. Mostly, the developers will get feedback on the popularity of their software by the number of downloads, and if the downloads are much greater will probaly not pay too much attention to the negative votes. It's not unreasonable to assume that if you have, say, 300 negative votes out of over 1,000 downloaders that the other 700+ are mostly satisfied. Most business people realize that the average person is much more likely to take the time to complain than to compliment. Sad, but true.

Truly ask your self will you ever make a power point file bigger than 700 mb if so you need this. Sometimes the converting process fails. The quality of it is truly pretty good. I have tried many other softwares like ispring but this one is the best. The bad thing about this is there is a bug in it. It always says runtime error. Also it will not work with powerpoint 2007. Also you do not need to have alot of time to use this.

WHY I VISIT GAOTD WEBSITE EVERY DAY?

Obviously, no one can download every program offered, as we will run out of space quickly, but I ENJOY reading the feedbacks. These feedbacks are very informative and help me know the pros and cons of the programs, AS WELL AS, solutions to some of the bugs in the programs.

I also very much value the FREE ALTERNATIVES suggested. I write down such info, so that if there is a need in the future, I can use those programs.

For program vendors too, GAOTD readers give valuable feedback to improve their wares.

Our sincere thanks to the GAOTD team and the many readers who contribute. My special thanks to ASHRAF, the MASTER REVIWER. His opinion is totally unbiased and professional. He has EARNED our trust. JazakAllahKhair (=Thank you) Ashraf!

Indeed does powerpoint viewer gives a solution to PPT for those who do not have Ms Office but please do not forget that the people who actually to have OpenOffice do not realise that this Suite actually opens ALL Ms Office documents. You just need to learn who to use it, and I think most people are actually dumb or lazy

I downloaded the last give away and use it to slowly convert all my old ppt presentation slide show movies. So I will download this one also. Most of my ppt presentations that I have made in the last almost 20 years, and yes I have ALL of them still saved on over 400 CD and DVD's, were about 1/3 visual effects, 1/3 pictures and 1/3 video clips.

The majority of the presentations I made were for local clubs, businesses, and individuals and family functions. Like I still do now, but using video software like Power Director. Which I am currently beta testing the next version again.

So those of you that cry because it only works with MS PPT. Either get MS PPT or just go away and we do not care if you are one of those minority that refuse to use MS products. You can still find the stand alone version of PPT 2000 out there cheap. I have had a MAC and used Linux. So what? They still could not do what I could and can do on the other machines I have using Windows and MS software.

We do not care if you still use Windows 95 or ME. And neither do the software developers.

I wish that the GAOTD gurus would chang the download page where you can only vote if you leave a comment. Because the thumb rating system here means NOTHING.... There are several regular review contributers that are geniuine and give good reviews. If you are having install or run questions please read the readme text file FIRST and do what it says, there are people here that will help you. Ask your question, and post you problem. But if you dont need it, dont want it, or you do not have another software installed that it will need to run.. SHUT UP! We do not care to hear your usless dribble.

Yes, some software is terrible, but some is good.

This is another thumbs up for me.

If the only problem / requirement is to make Power point presentation accesible (readable/playable) to people not having Powerpoint installed (must pay for it) then using free Powerpoint viewer may be a solution:

67% THUMBS DOWN?????? Can't believe my eyes!!

What's wrong with this program, for this kind of rating? Maybe is it because many people here use OPEN OFFICE rather than MS Office??

Well what has this to do with the features of this nice applications?

I think that it should be necessary to have actually TRIED the program before given it a rating but unfortunately many people here are committed to vote the GAOTD according to their PERSONAL NEEDS rather than to its real features so if they don't need it they give one or more THUMBS DOWN to the program, regardless of its real value and usefulness.

In my humble view it would be a great idea if the VOTING SYSTEM could be limited just to people who have actually downloaded and tried the GAOTD, for instance giving them a CODE once downloaded it.

The result would be a far more accurate picture of how GOOD or BAD the GAOTD actually is, as misleading BAD RATINGS may actually affect the quality of the (future) programs offered here on the long term because the flawed rating system could discourage the best software developers from offering their products here as I guess that they do not like to get beat up with lots of unfair THUMBS DOWN (most of visitors here make up their mind by watching only the GAOTD FINAL USER RATING of the program instead of reading the comments published in the forum).

As matters stand, if I were a (serious) COMMERCIAL SOFTWARE DEVELOPER, I wouldn't embrace GAOTD as a medium for advertising my products, giving their licence to GAOTD's visitors for FREE, since most of the times the products here are randomly rated by people who didn't even try them (and in fact it's not an accident that all programs offered here on a daily basis have often been already given away only a couple of months ago, but if they got 60% thumbs down a couple of months ago and the slurp is more or less the same it's likely that they might get a quick thumbs down even now...LOL!!)


GAOTD Team?? Where are you??? Wake up, please!!! LOL!!



Cheers from Italy!!

#21 PESfan, This discussion has gone around and around in the forums already. Voting on the activation page would mean people would have to vote as soon as they install the software - not after using it for a while. And people vote only on their own rules or none at all (it isn't compulsory, and nobody is going to lock you up if you just decide to vote one way or another). Best idea - read the comments, seach online for some other independent reviews - try it out and make your own mind up. I'd never use the random voting here as a basis of whether the software is worth purchasing. (But that's just me).

#19 GAOTD posters overwhelmingly give the raspberry to Powerpoint-related software which requires actual installation of MS-PPT. Remember, this group is freebie-oriented. I disregard the thumbs ratio whenever I see software here that ties into MS Office products.

I tried the previous PPT to Vid giveaway and it was a bust - I got a silent black video. I'll try this one, tho'.

#19. Cyn,

Most people give the thumbs up or the thumbs down according to the fact whether they have a use for the program, and not the program's quality. So, I think GOTD should modify the theme a bit, making the rating system only available on the "Activated" page.

#18 yeah it's usually very difficult to see whether the problem is at the developers end, the user's end or at GOTD's end. However, most commonly it seems that the problem is at the user's end, and I've seen many times that those users problems getting solved by other commentors. This time, Michael himself has solved the problem, so why complain?

I don't understand the disparity between the positive reviews (above) and the 2:1 negative thumbs for this program.

I know that the others can be ruthless in shredding a review, but could some of the thumbs down people please explain what is lacking or what they do not like with the program?

And if someone has an Open Source/shareware/freeware solution that they prefer/use, would you please send that link?

@#15 MichaelMooreFan - In your comment under “Bad” you described a problem you encountered. You attributed the cause of that problem to a bug in this program, and it needs to be researched and fixed by the developer. Have you considered that perhaps this “bug” has something to do with your PC and therefore needs to be researched and fixed on your end?
Afterall, nobody’s perfect…lol

Seems there is a BUG in installation routine:
OS Vista x32 with KASPERSKY INTERNET SECURITY 2009
I had to stopp Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 for installation time period, or there are error messages like this:
Runtime Error (at 61:381):
Cannot open file
c:\users\[name]\AppData\Local\Temp\is-1FLAU.tmp\advert.bmp
Runtime Error (at 61:381):
Cannot open file
c:\users\[name]\AppData\Local\Temp\is-I2LG1.tmp\advert.bmp
Only deactivation adv banners doesn't help!!
That's no good standard for setup file!

Thanks for the program, I hope it will be working properly!
